A car for enthusiasts

I've loved cars all my life, built hot rods as a youth and owned many sports cars since, but never found the perfect blend of performance, economy and comfort I enjoy in my GTI. Want performance? choose the gear of your choice on the fly to upshift or downshift without taking your hands off the steering wheel. The suspension is just right, provides tight handling without punishing you when you are in the rough. The six speed transmission gives you a low gear so low that it overcomes turbo lag. Want economy? get more mpg by using higher gear ratios and engine braking to save wear and tear on the pads. The transmission lets you do all of these good things, but doesn't let you punish the engine - as you slow down it automatically downshifts if you don't remember to do it yourself. In short, it is a pleasure to drive a car that has clearly been designed by enthusiasts for enthusiasts, much more fun to drive than the usual warmed-up gussied-up family car.

Second time

This would be my second vw. My first was a 2004 vw gli. When I was shopping for a new car, I came upon a 2008 gti that was priced ok, and only had 34k on the clock. A certified one owner, came with a full votex kit with the optional 18 inch wheels and performace tires. From the handling, it goes where you want it to go. Its a half inch lower than the 06 and 07 models, so it has a more aggresive stance. The motor delivers no matter what gear your on, while still holds 30 on the highway on cruise. Very comfortable. The interior looks very classy,even though i didnt have the leather or nav. The exterior is nice as well. From the lines of the car to the HID headlights, im very pleased with my second vw.

Fun to drive

Loving the VW Golf GTI! One of the few cars left that you can still find with a straight shift - 6 gears at that!! The car's performance is excellent and it's such fun to drive! Only wish the Autobahn existed here in USA because this car is definitely made for it! I can only think of one negative point regarding the car and that is the type of gas you have to get. Only certain gas stations are OK to go to and then you have to purchase the most expensive, high octane gas they carry. But other than that, the car is great and if you drive it "normal", the gas mileage isn't bad at all.
